Delta to provide additional manpower to CRK’s Bureau of Quarantine

Governor Dennis ‘Delta’ Pineda will provide additional manpower to the Bureau of Quarantine of Clark International Airport (CIA) to keep Pampanga free from the Novel Corona Virus or 2019-nCoV.

This came as Governor Delta called for an emergency meeting on Friday with the Luzon International Premier Airport Development (LIPAD) Corporation and Bureau of Quarantine at CIA to discuss current security measures against 2019-nCoV.

Governor Delta said: “Nag-usap na kami ng DOH [Department of Health] kanina, so we know na kulang kayo sa manpower… ‘Yun ang primary concern namin.”

“That’s why we’re here po to send doctors and nurses who will monitor 24-hour operations, but we’ll still wait for your command.”

Dr. Jay Rivera is designated team leader of the group of doctors and nurses trained by Jose B.Lingad Memorial Regional Hospital (JBLMRH).

Dr. Rivera said nurses are currently undergoing training on how to properly handle facilities intended for suspected passengers.

The governor also offered to provide a 40-foot aluminum container van which will serve as the holding isolation facility should there be suspected passengers carrying the virus in the airport.

Bureau of Quarantine Medical Officer Vicente Zaldivar said they welcome any support from the local government units to control the entry of 2019-NCoV in the airport.

LIPAD Chief Executive Officer Bi Yong Chungunco also expressed their gratitude to Governor Pineda for giving all kinds of assistance.

As of writing, no suspected cases of 2019-nCoV have been reported in Central Luzon.
